Green Banana Powder

Paleo • Gluten-Free • Nut-Free • Low-Glycemic • Prebiotic

Green banana powder is made from unripe yellow bananas. It has been popular in Africa and Jamaica for some time as a less expensive alternative to wheat flour. More recently, it’s gained popularity in the United States and other countries for its health benefits and because it meets the needs of a variety of health-conscious diets. Raw, it has a mild banana flavor. Cooked, it loses the banana flavor and gains some earthiness.

All bananas are great sources of potassium, magnesium, manganese, vitamins B6, and C. Green bananas, however, have not yet developed the sugar content present when ripe and yellow. They are very high in resistant starch, which turns into sugar as bananas ripen, and pectin, which breaks down when a banana becomes over-ripe. Resistant starch and pectin may support many aspects of health, including healthy appetite control and digestive health.(1) Prebiotics such as green banana flour are growing in popularity as their relationship with probiotics is becoming more widely understood in digestive health and immune support.

BCFoods green banana powder is an ideal ingredient for paleo, gluten-free, nut-free, and low glycemic applications, such as bread, cookies, baking mixes, and snack bars. It’s also a perfect addition to smoothies and a great thickener for dips and spreads.
